"Simplicity" --- SOLD



Sometimes life throws you a curve ball so tough you've got to escape for a little while. That happened to me yesterday. I got in my car and drove for a while and stopped at this little cemetery next to the cutest little, old, quintessential, white church. All around the church and cemetery were fields full of the most beautiful wildflowers, just coming out here in Texas. I had a good cry, picked these yellow flowers and drove back home. All in all an interesting experience, and just what I needed.

Hi Carol. Maybe you were having a spring shower of the Soul, and now the wild flowers will bloom for you. The Julian Onderdonk show is on at the DMA, It's great to see and the Turner also. The Julian will move to San Anton and everyone should see it. I thought that I would never see one of these paintings. Still enjoying your simplicity, keep 'em coming. :)

Sorry to hear you had a curve ball Carol. The work is still great. I have been looking around at a lot of daily painter sites and Ebay and all that and your paintings really do stand out. Hope today is a homerun.

Life threw you a big curve ball, and you hit a major home run with this little painting....we could all use a lesson from you in properly handling adversity! Nicely done, Ms. Carol!

I agree with judy, I find it takes courage to keep the paintings coming when I am under duress, so, kudos for doing it irrespectively. It inspires others.

Carol, this does seem a more contemplative painting than usual, but lovely as always.
